Emily Ratajkowski Proves Politics and Fashion Make a Perfect Match

The model and actress makes a sartorial statement just in time for International Women’s Day.

While Jonathan Anderson at Loewe and Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior debuted their most recent work inside Paris’s hallowed halls, model and actress Emily Ratajkowski touched down in Paris and ventured onto the streets midway through the Fall 2017 collections. It’s been a jet set week for Ratajkowski — she took in the Academy Awards debacle on Sunday and the Vanity Fair afterparty, wearing an embellished, sheer Jonathan Simkhai gown. Then it was off to New York City, where she helped launch the H&M Studio collection and had a few minutes to talk politics while she was at it, and finally over to Paris — and back to Jonathan Simkhai. She sat front-row at the designer’s Fall 2017 show, where she picked up the “Feminist AF” shirt she packed for the trip and brought out just after her arrival. Just in time for International Women’s Day, EmRata is wearing her politics loud and proud, and supporting a favorite designer while she’s at it.

Who: Emily Ratajkowski.

When: Friday, March 3.

Where: On the streets of Paris during the Paris Fashion Week Fall 2017 shows in the French capital.

What: One of Jonathan Simkhai‘s “Feminist AF” t-shirts, which were distributed among front-row stars at the designer’s New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 show, a Tory Burch bag, a dark green silk robe with fur trim by Cinque, light-wash jeans, and black sandals.

Why: It seems like everyone is getting on board with graphic t-shirts now. First, it was Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior; then, in New York, Robert Geller stepped out on the runway of his show in a DIY “Immigrant” t-shirt. When women’s week rolled around, it was Jonathan Simkhai, Prabal Gurung, and Public School who were all adopting graphic lettering on t-shirts and hats. Emily Ratajkowski brings a bold, explicit statement to the Paris shows with her Jonathan Simkhai t-shirt, and proves fashion and politics make a perfect match by pairing the t-shirt with a long silk robe, jeans, and a preppy Tory Burch bag.
